Grained goddess ...

That little love affair I have with wood has me drooling over some incredibly handsome wood chargers.

You might look at this modest dining accessory and think nothing of its presence at the table.  But, I see its glorious potential.

I have been staring adoringly at the wood charger at the base of this placesetting for months. (Okay, I've taken a few breaks, but I do keep coming back for one peek after another.) Adorned with wrought iron handles and layered with glitsy metals and china, these babes have star quality at any table. (Oh, how I wish they were at my dining table!)

So, here's what I'm thinking. Next time we receive some of our soap-making materials on a wood pallet, my darling husband will be called into service. (He really doesn't seem to mind.)

One pallet, wood stain, wood glue, several vices, and a saw. Cut, glue, hold, and finally trim into a circle (for my round chargers). Oops. Better add sandpaper to that supply list, too.

Oh yeah! Definitely want these.
